McDaniel v. Wills

Posted By on Mon, Mar 9, 2009 at 11:04 AM

Brummett blogs about some interplay between Attorney General Dustin McDaniel and House Speaker Robbie Wills. Looks to me more of same: Wills is standing in the way of McDaniel's ethics legislation because 1) he sees no problem with legislators turning into lobbyists and 2) he sees no problem with lobbyists slopping legislators, even by remote control. You don't get elected House speaker by proposing to undo this cozy system. 

For cover, Wills blames McDaniel for opposing ethics legislation the House approved two years ago. This also happens to be true. It also happens to be true that Wills supported Robert Herzfeld in McDaniel's race for attorney general and prima politicos sometimes have long memories.
